did pretty well. he came up short in montana but came close. much closer than many people thought, so they say look, now he wants to show that even if some people in these areas may disagree with him, he wants to go in and have a thoughtful conversation, reasoned debate in comparison to some of the town hall meetings we've seen across the country. what he's going do at the top is lay out why he thinks there needs to be insurance reform, that's his big folk occur, just to say you have insurance are doesn't mean you're safe and secure, you could lose that coverage. secondly, he'll take questions for about an hour, we're told. these tickets were distributed randomly on the internet. people were able it to sign up. they didn't have control over democrats or republicans got them. just as we saw yesterday, just one or two tough questions in montana at a town hall meeting, for people coming at it from the other side. the president could get tough questions from the other side today as well. as you noted at the to we are getting information are from white house aides. ed president is very ear
